Warning... MASSIVE stupidity in this next link.
I... I don't know what to say about this one. I honestly think this is one of the dumbest things to come from Ubisoft for... years.
Lets go over this, step by step.
"We were reading reviews about Revelations and a few people were asking whether this was the end of the franchise." When asked why Nintendo could get away with yearly installments while Revelations was criticized, Hutchinson stated, "I think there's a subtle racism in the business, especially on the journalists' side, where Japanese developers are forgiven for doing what they do."
Um... wat... Is this man joking or what? Did he even SEE the shitstorm that is FF13 reviews? Also... it seems to be more the opposite really. Western reviewers are more or less against Japanese games instead of forgiving from what I am seeing.
"Hutchinson accused game journalists of praising Japanese games for stories that are "literally gibberish," adding, "then Gears of Warcomes out and apparently it's the worst written narrative in a game ever. I'll take Gears of War over Bayonetta any time."
This is so dumb... So so dumb... I think I have lost brain cells from how stupid this above statement is. I... cannot find words to express how fucking wrong and stupid this truly is. I can think of only two.
I honestly think this is the most racist thing Ubisoft has ever done... I mean it. This is MASSIVELY racist IMO. He groups up the entirety of Japan and tells other people that our reviewers forgive them more due to the fact that Ubisofts Assassins Creed revelation was a cash in!? Also for the fact that Western reviewers are more hard on Japanese games as well?
This has got to be even dumber than a Cracked Article about video games from David Wong... it is unholy amounts of stupid.
